Join AIA/PV and Capital Area CRAN on a tour of the Great Falls custom home of Francisca and Antonio Alonso, partners in the design-build firm, AV Architects + Builders, as well as in marriage. They have been designing and building modern homes in the DMV for more than 20 years and have extensive experience in all aspects of the process to share with architects. One of their most recent projects was a home for their own family, which includes four young adult children. They designed it with the intention of living in this home until it’s time for a new property and an exciting new architectural project.

Together with Theo Adamstein, formerly of Adamstein & Demetriou Architects, now Sales Associate and Vice President at TTR Sotheby’s International Realty, they will present an engaging and informative program on how to design a custom house with resale in mind.

The tour will take place from 3:30 to 4:30 PM. Enjoy happy hour drinks and bites while you visit and tour the stunning home.

Organized by AIA PV and the Capital Area CRAN (Custom Residential Architects Network, an AIA Knowledge Community), a tri-chapter committee founded jointly by AIA DC, AIA Northern Virginia and AIA Potomac Valley. 

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn how decision-making for a custom home is affected, throughout the design and construction process, when viewed through the lens of future resale.
2. Understand how to prioritize decisions, when viewed through this lens, based on creating value without compromising quality and design.
3. Focus on how to guide clients in making good design, color and materials, finishes and fixture decisions, whether they intend to live in the home or are building to sell.
4. Tour the home and site to view examples of a multitude of considerations encountered by this design-builder couple in creating their current home and future “house-for-sale.”
